REFUGEE Stainless Steel

'REFUGEE' is a direct personal response to various conflicts and humanitarian crisis worldwide. It's a critique of governments and regimes complicit in the injustices, oppression and cruelty inflicted on the underprivileged and dispossessed. We experience these injustices through the media in ways that seem to negate the individual. This body of work focuses on individual relationships, families, children etc, in an attempt to humanise and depoliticise in favour of and emotional understanding.

SENTINELS & LICTORS: These sculptures are inspired by the existence in culture of individual whose role is to act as a physical presence to guard and enforce. In life, these figures are seen very differently by different groups within a society. These sculptures attempt to express the duality of the role and encourage an ambiguity of interpretation.
